    Caching WSDL, generating strongly typed web service classes

    JoshBeall Level 1
      Hi All,

      I come from an ASP.NET background. Visual Studio provides a great tool for generating proxy classes based on a WSDL XML document. What's so great about this is that you are able to have strongly type classes (with intellisense in the IDE), compile time type checking, and so forth.

      What this means is that if I have a web service that defines the method getColors, and takes two parameters; let's say an enumerated type, "primary" or "secondary" for the first parameter, and "hex" or "english" for the second parameter (also an enumerated type), Visual Studio will generate a proxy class for me that will give me type hinting. I'll see that the "getColors" method takes two parameters, and it will even show the the possible values for the enumerated type.

      Is there anything like this in Flex?
